Yes, I see on the 37 w/ sidebyside. But on the 28 its not there.
And sorry, I use my GPS as an aid, but can alway rely on my compass.
Plus, once i get my heading from the gps, the compass is much easier to read.

I like the ATs, but its the only boat i know of that doesn't have a compass in front of the driver.

Both of these co are semi custom, so you can put your compass where ever you like. If you find it more necessary it to be put in front of vs the GPS, great, you can have your cake and eat it to.... but then the speedo has to go on the other side

I have the AT dvd, and like the line alot. I've thought about the 28at, but w/ such a high freeboard on a short boat makes it look a bit stubby.

I think we're talking the 28 to 28. And if the captain can't have all navigation devices infront of him then its a poorly designed dash.

Lets count how many compases there are on a race boat.

Jass, btw, love your nortech.

The Blue 36 Pantera MUST be seen in person to appreciate it!!!

I was at the factory monday afternoon, and even with all of the other boats around, I kept coming back to the blue one.

This 36' has a full 24' degree deepm V bottom. We also offer our 36' "twin stepped" bottom design.

Our F2-71 powered by twin 525 EFIs will run in the 93-94 MPH range on GPS with a side by side setup and at 9000 pounds due to APBA F2 rules.We are also restricted on drive height.

The full pleasure model 36' will actually weigh about the same or a little less than the F2 race model since we have added ballast weight in it now to make class rules.


Regards,

JO

Joe what about notching the transom ,would that help with the drive height rules?and or make it faster.


I have heard good things about AT but nothing on there 28 .Jassman,MitchStellin,had the larger ones, JCPerf I think has a 28 and knows a few people with them also..

Doesn't AT have a new owner?

I think Pantera has a better reputation , look at 28's on the race course.

What does the cabin look like on the two 28's. an does that make a difference to ya?

Rob
My personal pref is Pantera

Hey Rob,

Our "twin stepped" bottom 36' does have a notch transom to help with the slip. In F2 we are resticted to have the prop shaft at no higher than 3 1/4 inches bellow the bottom of the boat.The Cobalt Blue 36' is being powered by twin 525 EFIs and does have a Notch transom and our "twin stepped" bottom.This 36' will run well into the low to mid 90s with this set up with a full cabin.

I took this picture of F2-71 GPS speedo in October 2003 at the St. Pete race with Steve from Offshore Only on the wheel going for a test run with me. 93.8 MPH at 9000 pounds full of fuel. With a staggered set up and removing the ballast weight added with a higher X dimension 100 MPH is possible with a full pleasure cockpit.

Here is a picture of a 2002 28' Pantera single cabin.

Regards,

JO

So the Survivor is a regular no step bottom and no notched transom.Are all your 36's now coming with the steps and notches?.

What does the notch actually do?

Rob


Joe that's some impressive speeds,congrats

Rob,

We offer the 36' Survivor model with a "twin stepped" bottom with a notch transom or as a full 24 degree deep V model.

The notch transom allows for cleaner water to the props and helps cut back some of the prop slip that Stepped bottoms are known to have.

I will post a picture of a notch for you to see later.
